Rubble & Wreckage #1

Now that spring is here, it looks like our management company has made an attempt to "repair" some of the damage done by Princeton Landing's snow removal contractor. Here's what it looks like.

Neither the stop sign nor the monument are in their original position. The stop sign was sloppily cemented into the landscape bed. Not only is the stop sign in the wrong place, it is much too close to what remains of the damaged planting.

The monument in a different position, and it looks like there was an unfortunate try at cementing the damage.

This is what the Parcel 6 corner looks like now after damage by Longford Landscapes and repairs by Signature Property Group.

This is what the Parcel 6 corner looked like once upon a time in Princeton Landing.

Snow Removal Wrecks Parcel 7 Berm

You have to be saddened by what was done this winter to this berm, which fronts on the Loop Road in Parcel 7. Our snow removal contractor piled so much snow onto it that they killed the understory of viburnum, broke branches off the pine trees and scarred the trunks, and dug ragged holes in the berm itself, uprooting the grasses. Yes, we had a bad winter, but we've had bad storms before and our community never suffered so much unnecessary destruction.

Many of us with an interest in Princeton Landing's landscape remember that the previous owner of the home adjacent to this berm took care of it lovingly for years. She and her husband built the home and were founding residents of the community. She sought to maintain the high standards for which Princeton Landing's landscape was once known. It is sad to see the results of her work destroyed.

Here's what it used to look like.

Another Tree Damaged During Snow Removal

This beautiful mature tree was damaged by the snow removal equipment piling huge mounds of snow on a corner in the community. This is in addition to the broken branches of the flowering cherry tree we reported on last week.
